Welsh Statutory Instruments

2003 No. 2661 (W.257)

FOOD, WALES

The Food (Star Anise from Third Countries) (Emergency Control) (Wales) (Revocation) Order 2003

Made

14th October 2003

Coming into force

17th October 2003

Whereas it appears to the National Assembly for Wales that the import of certain Star Anise consigned from countries which are not Member States of the European Community no longer involves imminent risk of injury to health;

Now therefore the National Assembly for Wales, in exercise of the powers conferred by sections 13(1) and 48(1) of the Food Safety Act 1990(1), and now exercisable by it in relation to Wales, having had regard in accordance with section 48(4A) of that Act to relevant advice given by the Food Standards Agency, makes the following Order:

Title, commencement and application

1.  This Order may be cited as the Food (Star Anise from Third Countries) (Emergency Control) (Wales) (Revocation) Order 2003, shall come into force on 17th October 2003 and shall apply to Wales only.

Revocation

2.  The Food (Star Anise from Third Countries) (Emergency Control) (Wales) Order 2002(2) is revoked.

Signed on behalf of the National Assembly for Wales under section 66(1) of the Government of Wales Act 1998(3)

D. Elis-Thomas

The Presiding Officer of the National Assembly

Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order revokes the Food (Star Anise from Third Countries) (Emergency Control) (Wales) Order 2002 (S.I. 2002/402)(W.50)(“the 2002 Order”), which prohibited the import of Star Anise and Japanese Star Anise into Wales where it was consigned from a country outside the European Community unless certain conditions were met. The 2002 Order implemented Commission Decision 2002/75/EC laying down special conditions on the import from third countries of Star Anise (OJ No. L33, 2.2.2002, p.31). That Decision was repealed by Commission Decision 2003/602/EC (OJ No. L204, 13.8.2003, p.60).
